No bettas thrive when in bigger aquariums 2-2.5 gallons in the minimum rec commended for one betta fish. You don't need a filter however your will need to keep your aquarium around 80 degrees so most places will need a heater and a thermometer.

Yes, it's too small. A 2.5 gallon tank or larger is what is recommended and a heater is a must. The betta care sheet can help you out more. Here's the link:

I agree with what the others said.
Also, pellets are recommended as the staple food so your fine.
You can buy bloodworms if you like but only use them as treats. Treats should only be fed 1-2 a week. You can also buy daphnia or brine shrimp as treats.
